Accelerate the green journey and make a difference, through bio fuel and energy-from-waste (EfW) solutions
With increasing pressure on local communities to become more sustainable and environmentally friendly, it’s vital to find cleaner energy sources and recycle what is already available. One form of recycling is bio energy, using today’s waste for tomorrow’s energy.
Bio energy means using local bio material derived from existing processes that would normally go to waste. Examples include wood from production and bio mass from farms, including organic waste, slurry manure and crop waste. As an alternative to fossil fuels, it can generate energy for the local community.
Bio energy’s key advantages when using local bio materials are:
- The abundance of local resources
- A reduction in waste streams, as much of today’s waste has energy that can be harnessed through bio instead of it going to waste
- Less pressure on our electricity grids when demand increases, as it can be used for other energy outputs, such as heat
- Energy efficiency
- Savings in Green House Gasses (GHG)
Green Transition Holding passionately believes that utilizing the energy we have in our local waste reduces the need for fossil fuels, brings down the pressure on our electricity grids and can help to meet future energy demands while reducing CO2 emissions.
At Green Transition Holding we perform two core activities in bio energy. Firstly, we invest in bio energy plants to help local communities reach their UN sustainability goals. And secondly, we support plants with our technology and operational expertise, including technical design and process competence.
Over the next 30 years it has been estimated that waste will grow by 70%*. This rise in waste is due to a growing population and rise in consumption, and an increased proportion of middle-class consumers. Ideally, we would be able to recycle all materials. However, waste is currently split between recyclable and non-recyclable.
Waste may fall into the non-recyclable category if…
The material is dangerous waste and needs to be disposed of in a specific way.
The products have some recyclable materials in them. In this case, Green Transition Holding will co-invest and partner up with waste sorters to establish an efficient way to handle and sort these materials so they can be recycled where possible. We will use the EfW process for all non-recyclable materials
The products/materials are 100% non-recyclable. In the past these products would have gone to landfill, but Green Transition Holding aims to use them as part of the EfW process.
The EfW process is an essential part of the waste management value chain, providing a sustainable way to dispose of waste that would otherwise end up in landfill. It provides an alternative to landfill, enabling waste handling for materials that are non-recyclable, and is seen as a greener way to dispose of this waste.
The EfW treatment process generates energy in the form of electricity and heat through incineration. It is seen as a type of thermo-chemical conversion and energy recovery.
EfW releases fewer CO2 emissions than landfill. As technology develops, EfW facilities will become more efficient and emissions will continue to fall, leading to a cleaner environment. With a growing need to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels to uphold EU environmental regulations, energy generated from waste will become a sustainable fuel source for the future.
At Green Transition Holding we have a core focus on investing in EfW plants. We acquire or design and build EfW plants, with proven technologies.
Our strengths in optimization and technology enable us to enhance operations in both acquired and new plants, increasing value both for our shareholders and for the local community.
By optimizing operations, Green Transition Holding can improve financial performance, build scale into our portfolio and provide energy as power and heat to local communities.
We invest in companies that serve the EfW sector to reduce emissions and support the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
